Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth...

Oh wow, I had fun reading this book and I’m in a bad shape of wanting to read the next one though I need to restrain myself from reading this series fast so that it would be less painful waiting for Origin coming out this August.
Katy and her mom recently moved to West Virginia three years after her dad’s death. She’s the kind of person who loves to read and blogs and just stay in her room trying to avoid the sunlight during summer.
So when her mom told her about their neighbors who are siblings and happened to be the same age as hers, she’s quite in for an unexpected events, a bucket of questions and the neighbors slash siblings who happen to carry a big secret..
Throw in some trust issues here, secrets over there, some witty-wits and bantering here, fighting here, love-hate relationship there and another round of trust issues which can’t ever be ignored. Add in a sprinkle of friendship and family relationship and put an obsidian on top like a cherry…or a star on the Christmas tree. That seemed kind of relevant for this story.
Katy, she’s likable for me. I feel like I’m her: runs a blog, reads and loves books, rather stay in my room and face my laptop rather than go mingling with friends or strangers to make friends, boring but not really.
Dee, I like her. She’s sweet and friendly and..nice. And as for Daemon, hot and gorgeous guy with an irritating smirk and moody personality that sometimes make him a sweet boy-next-door, he was absolutely a douchebag and a jerk and somewhat overprotective over Dee and at times, I feel bad for Katy because of him. I get the part that he’s trying to protect Dee because “she’s all he has left" but I don’t think that hurting Katy is a good thing. But as I progressed into the story, he’s warming up to me and I find him interesting and funny. Well his and Katy’s bantering is fun.

AND KATY’S MOM~ I like her mom.

"How about I show up in my undies?"

“That would definitely make an impression.”

“Mom! You’re supposed to yell at me and tell me that’s not a good idea!”

and this one

"Honey, are you sure you’re feeling okay? Do you need anything? Some chicken soup? Hugs? Kisses?"

Aww haha. I wish my mom still ask me those kind of questions but nah. Anyway, like I said, I had fun reading this and I definitely look forward to reading the next book. I sure wish I bought the first two books together but I was determined to buy only one book that time. It was so tempting but I held back. Heck, even the bookstore’s cashier told me this was great. He was right ;)
